Fun and games

Phoebe has gone to stay with a friend for the weekend and so that Emily will feel neither sad nor bored in the absence of her beloved sister, I have decided to keep her occupied with a succession of jolly games. We are playing cards.

"So, my love, how are you feeling without Phoebe?"

"A bit sad. And a bit bored."

I am surprised and not a little hurt that my carefully planned evening of fun does not seem to be working. Perhaps we should abandon cards and move on to the next game on my list.

"Alright then, how about an exciting game of dominoes, my love?"
